Battlecross will be touring in support of their latest album, Rise to Power, which landed on the Billboard charts at #103, marking the band’s second Billboard chart entry (2013′s War of Will entered the charts at #130). To preview and purchase Rise to Power, please visit:

Allegaeon will release their new album, Proponent for Sentience, this Friday (September 23rd). Produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation), Proponent for Sentience is a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths.

If flaccid, identikit, breakdown-laden “metal” is the disease, Necromancing The Stone‘s recently released debut full-length, Jewel of the Vile, is the cure. Featuring current/former members of Arsis (James Malone, guitars), The Absence (Jeramie Kling, drums), The Black Dahlia Murder (Ryan “Bart” Williams, bass) and Brimstone Coven (guitarist Justin Wood and vocalist “Big” John Williams), Necromancing The Stone “has brought back the glory days [of '80s heavy metal] with unbridled spirit” ( To preview and purchase Jewel of the Vile, please visit:
